    Obviously posting a report isn't the sole demise. Dur. Hence, "Among other things". Blowing up an area online doesn't do anything to help. We're already having our encounters measured inaccurately, online reports aren't helping. People didn't listen on the original go around, I didn't think...

    Chamber Sealers? Which one?

    For the most part, I am only going to be sealing items in portions no bigger than for 2 people. It seems like a VP112 should be sufficient. Wouldn't you think? Is there really any benefit to me going for the VP215? I can't see any benefit to the bigger one.

    Modify Coyote/Kingfisher spoon - swivel/second hook

    I love it when people think outside of the box, it really makes this sport fun. My initial thoughts however are: What happens when a king rips that trailing hook off by tearing that heat shrink tubing? Isn't that trailing hook going to kill the action of the spoon?

    Precisely why I threw this in there...Because I haven't ridden in all of them, nor do I know about all of them... That being said, I do notice that even the Ocean Pro's have a thinner bottom @ .019 Compared to the .250 on the NR.

    SAN JUAN NO-GO ZONE INFO/IDEAS

    What have they done in the PNW so far? For the longest time, since the get go, I should say, there have been far too many stories of people contributing money and time to their cause and not getting so much as a thank you. On the contrary, the members are receiving notices stating that if they...

    SAN JUAN NO-GO ZONE INFO/IDEAS

    Well Troy, If nothing else, you have evoked enough frustration in me to get me off my ass. Living near Bellingham, what would be the best CCA to join? Anacortes? Bellingham? I'll admit, I have been rather CCA skeptical, but at this point, I feel that it is better than nothing. Ideas??

    I would keep a close eye on the weather channel if you intend on heading out there. The forecast for tomorrow is pretty similar for what it was today.

    Need help convincing? Convincing of what? We are aware that this impending closure is very real. That is not the issue, the issue is that trying to talk to these guys is virtually impossible. Why would the commies want to talk to us if, from their mindset, we will be gone anyway. Kind of...

    downrigger braid

    I just switched over to it and love it. I switched to the 175#. No cable whine, easy to make repairs. Originally I had the 250# but the blowback was too much for my liking. The 175# is perfect I think.

    Spectra Downrigger Cable

    I see that a few people commented on their counters being off after putting on the braid. Any ideas how to resolve that issue? Mine was off before pulling it off. I couldn't figure out how to make it right.

    Braided DR line

    I have 2-400' rolls that I used one day. It's Scotty 250# and too much blowback for me personally. Not too mention, the counters are off now and won't go back to being accurate. I will gladly sell the 2 rolls if anyone is interested.

    I changed over to braid this afternoon and will deal with the wiring problems later when it's not peak times for kings.

    I hit the lake this a.m. and unplugged the downriggers and took a reading right on the cable, with it unplugged. Today, it was worse..... Touching ground on the battery and the other end right on the downrigger cable, it came back at 1.011. Plugging downrigger in, the reading stayed the same...

    If it was a grounding issue, wouldn't my hull voltage be a lot higher than .014? It seems odd that my hull voltage is so low, yet I have a very high cable reading. Maybe I am beginning to over think things a bit.

    Hot Boat Questions

    I think I know what you are trying to convey. That is a good question though. I will take a look at that tomorrow though for sure. It's hard to believe that when these boats get rigged, they don't take all this into consideration while rigging.

    All of the grounds are either grounded to a ground buss bar, or a battery.

    The hulls voltage with the kicker running is .014, but the downrigger cables are reading .930 and .935. The only thing running with those readings was the sonar and the kicker.

    My boat several months back was .440. I scrubbed zincs, replaced master switch that was leaking electricity through the common, and it came in around .600. Now for some reason, it has crept up into the ungodly .900's. I am wondering if it is the curse of Brian Brush
